Question #1[edit | edit source]

Question:
Did I do this correctly? 〜Celadontalk 18:34, 11 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
Yes you did, you clever girl. 〜Celadontalk 18:34, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #2[edit | edit source]

Question:
We need to think of a way to do the skill pages and have them so they aren't so different. I see some pages that have Ranks in them and/or Summary on them (Ranks has the skill ranking benefits more detailed, while Summary sums it up IE Ranks: Increases the chance to knock back an enemy by 10%/ Summary: Knockback Chance Increase [%]|10| etc.) please tell put your thoughts so we can have this Wiki's skill listing format not so random and more easily recognizeable rather than create confusion when pages look different. Please and thank you
--Marthian 00:49, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

This question was originally asked on a different page and was moved here by Celadon.

Answer:
I agree with this, the skill pages need some revamping, we will look into it after we deal with the new categories and updating Ainle stuff! --Bumbletalk 04:44, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #3[edit | edit source]

Question:
Is there a way to make a template out of this , if yes, could someone make one? It's a template to combine two pictures together. I would need this later to put "labels" on pictures (you'll see :P). I need a template like that were you can input the values for the pictures, the x and the y Nedigo 15:11, 14 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
Well that would be with using the postion:absolute in css but any way to make the pos of it variable from outside the css sheet without having to do a premade pos?

Nameless54 04:39, 16 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
Heyo, I talked to some friends, they seem to be having the same problem. It has to do with the server, not your computer. Don't worry, Nexon should fix the issue soon. --Bumbletalk 04:42, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #5[edit | edit source]

Question:
Hello, I'm wondering what is the equipment's deterioration points for? Are those points similar to mabinogi's equipment proficiency? >:3~ 17:08, 16 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
Deterioration points increase after repairing an item, more you have deterioration points, more it will cost to repair that armor or weapon --Nedigo 18:19, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

The higher your deterioration points are, the faster your gear will break in a dungeon when getting hit. --Bumbletalk 18:21, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #6[edit | edit source]

Question:
I've been trying to connect to the game servers for a day or so with no success. It shows a "connecting to server" message for a second or so and then it says that it lost connection. I tried both west and east, multiple times. What can I do? --Jono00 15:42, 17 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
This could be due to a variety of reasons. Firstly, if you don't live in Canada or the States, then you've most likely been IP blocked by Nexon. Since dungeon runs in Vindictus are based mainly on peer-to-peer connections, Nexon IP blocked many areas so that the people playing are people who are somewhat close to each other. If two people live on two different hemispheres and are trying to connect, a lot of information tends to be lost and/or there's a greater delay in the sending and receiving of data compared to when two people living in the same country connect.

Secondly, was the game undergoing maintenance at the time? If so, then please note that you cannot connect to the game when it is undergoing maintenance.

Lastly, many people have been experiencing some latency issues with Vindictus lately, and it's something we have no control over. You could try restarting your computer or your Vindictus client, but it shouldn't have too great of an effect. 〜Celadontalk 17:10, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #7[edit | edit source]

Question:
How official/unofficial is this wiki in regards to the official Vindictus NA game by Nexon? Considering there was a normal news article on the front page of http://Vindictus.Nexon.net about this wiki. Untamed1337 22:36, 17 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
It's as official as it can be. What else is there left to say? O: 〜Celadontalk 00:56, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

http://Vindictus.Nexon.net/News/Content.aspx?boardNo=100&contentNo=008fC&pageIndex=2
It says it here that we are the official wiki :) --Nedigo 20:26, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #8[edit | edit source]

Question:
A few questions. Will there be a character wipe after the Open Beta that is currently in progress? When is the Open Beta finished and the game officially live? Do items purchased with real currency, if chosen the option of 'permanent' carry over after the Open Beta? Thanks! --Carrotus 19:31, 18 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
The wipe was only from Closed Beta to Open Beta, so there will be no more wipes. The date of the official release is unknown but there will probably no difference in-game :) --Nedigo 20:29, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Backing up Nedigo's answer. Characters in Open Beta will not be wiped during the transition to the official release. 〜Celadontalk 20:48, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #9[edit | edit source]

Question:
I did some research and I found out that an NPC of Mabinogi: Fantasy Life, the sequel, has a reference to Vindictus. Should there be any mention of this in this wiki? (Proof) Shadowslicer777 09:45, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
I'm not really sure, I looked up this NPC a few times on Korean wikis but found no trance. I don't think it's really needed to mention him unless he appears in Vindictus somewhere. --Bumbletalk 12:25, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Maybe when we get more information about the link between Mabinogi and Vindictus we can make a page about it ... So far the only link we know of in Mabinogi is this, and in Vindictus we only know that Erinn is like paradise but is locked up and all Fomors needs to be exterminated to access it again, etc. Probably with future release, more content will come up. --Nedigo 13:56, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Well Legatus did say the word "Dragon", and "Dragons" did appear in trailers. So the possibly of him appearing is highly plausable. Shadowslicer777 15:41, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Question #10[edit | edit source]

Question:
Is it me or is Combat Respiration bugged? It says I'm supposed to gain Stamina DURING combat but I'm not. Shadowslicer777 18:13, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
You'll notice that once you stop fighting, stamina will start to regenerate. Once half the expended stamina has been refilled, the regen rate increases significantly. The first phase of stam regen is considered "during combat", and is slower than the second phase, which is considered "out of combat".

Question #11[edit | edit source]

Question:
What is "SP"? What are SP bars? How does one accumulate SP? Can someone please give a general description of the SP system? GarGan2N 20:24, 28 October 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
SP is used for special skills. When you get an SP skill (it has it's own tab in your skill window btw) you'll get an empty SP bar below your stamina bar. SP gauge fills up when you hit an enemy, block an attack, or counterattack. The gauge is split into 4 smaller bars and SP skills use a certain number of them for moves.
Some may take 1 or 2 of the smaller bars or some may take 3 or 4 (stronger skills take more generally). I can't say exactly how fast you can build SP though. For fiona it seems very quick. Guard, counter, heavy stander, OR attacking the enemy for her builds it up. For Lann, only attacking the enemy increases his SP.
Oh and to use an SP skill you press a certain key (default is z I believe, but I changed mine to mouse button 4). You hit that while standing still and it activates it. --DANTE20XX 00:09, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

SP is also gained from taking damage, and healing people. I don't know if converting life ergs counts, probably not.--Kong 01:12, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #12[edit | edit source]

Question:
Secondary Weapon Mastery. How to get? My Lann is already at lv 29 and the page says the minimum level is 15? Shadowslicer777 00:57, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
Pretty sure it's not out yet--DANTE20XX 04:43, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

If it isn't out, then why do we have the Light of Plara? That doesn't make sense... Shadowslicer777 01:16, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Because the item exists and whether or not we can use it is not of extreme importance. Also, we can't add the Unimplemented template to it since it's technically implemented. 〜Celadontalk 02:06, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Secondary Weapon Mastery has since been released. Characters need to be level 30 to gain access to it now. --Rognik 15:46, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Question #13[edit | edit source]

Question:
When will other towns be available and how would one get there? Edit: I didn't mean to sound impatient, I thought there was a higher level or quest that would lead a player there not in the way you thought. I'll be more descriptive next time.


Answer:
Ever heard of patience? No one knows and no one will ever know. Shadowslicer777 03:37, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #14[edit | edit source]

Question:
I reached Rank A Gliding Fury. Now it says "challenge". What does that mean? Shadowslicer777 03:31, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
It means in the future there will be a quest you have to do before you can rank it up. Magic Arrow already has the quest in game, but I think that's the only challenge quest so far. Saiyr 03:43, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #15[edit | edit source]

Question:
The monsters are wide out and I would like to merge all the monsters into one page. Either into Species (such as putting the gnoll monsters into the same page) or by boats. It seems to me that each monster page is too small to be on its own and that having them in one page will make them easier to find and compare. Using redirects such as #redirect [[Vampires#The Ashen]] will help give comparison easier. I discussed this with many people and they enjoy the idea. --Kenero 04:13, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
I made this suggestion a long time ago and I still support it. I'll bring it up in IRC if I remember it. I think by species is the best way to do it. I'd like to avoid a global list to reduce clutter. Saiyr 04:24, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #16[edit | edit source]

Question:
Um, how do I go to the PvP place? Shadowslicer777 01:37, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
You'll have to ask this again when it's actually released into our version. As of now, we do not have it.--DANTE20XX 04:24, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

... They should really put "This is not released" or something similar on that freakin page.... Shadowslicer777 01:50, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #17[edit | edit source]

Question:
How does dy(e)ing work? Is it by random or something? Shadowslicer777 07:12, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
Yes, it is totally random as to the color you get...unfortunately... Caboose707 23:20, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #18[edit | edit source]

Question:
Whenever I play through the Vindictus universe, every time I go near fire or something frizzy, my FPS drops. How do I fix the lag? Shadowslicer777 07:12, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
PS: I have my graphics at lowest.

Answer:
Are you graphics set on DirectX 8 instead of 9? The difference between 8 and 9 is huge for some lower end (intel) or older graphics cards as it will completely remove some newer effects instead of lowering them. For me manually tweaking with the advanced settings to make things lower than they are with "Lowest" simple settings actually decreased frame rate for most settings(sounds odd but i swear it is true at least on my laptop), so trying using the simple settings slider first. After that try lowering settings one at a time if it still isn't working. The fire on the docks might be a good place for you to try settings if fire bothers your computer.

Question #19[edit | edit source]

Question:
I have seen a few party leaders SKIP that opening intro on boats, where everyone is waving and smiling. Does anyone know how SKIP THE BOAT INTRO exactly? Caboose707 23:22, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

For me hitting esc during a cut scene only brings up the mouse courser. I would love to know how to actually skip these as my computer/connection are capable of hosting speed runs except for having to sit through cut scenes. Sigil Baram (Talk) 00:48, 21 December 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
You don't simply just press the ESC key, you have to HOLD down the ESC key for it to actually skip the cutscene(will not work for all cutscenes)~ Omerta

Question #20[edit | edit source]

Question:
I am trying to figure out Evie's different crits. I read all the info on them. and on magic crit it says that it affects evies scythe "drain and release" skills..what exactly is a drain and release skill. Caboose707 01:18, 8 November 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
Most likely skills where you smash and then hit E or whatever key right after. Try checking this spreadsheet for some more information. 〜Celadontalk 02:19, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Question #21[edit | edit source]

Question:
Hello I'm new to wiki so please barebear with me. I'm trying to Organize some the pages. How would I do this? Evilboy05 01:29, 13 December 2010 (UTC)


Answer:
Never mind I Figured it Out. Evilboy05 01:51, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Question #22[edit | edit source]

Question:
I have upgraded equipment on me thats binded. How do I eliminate the bind? Shadowslicer777 01:33, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
As of Episode 4 It is not out yet. Evilboy05 03:32, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Question #23[edit | edit source]

Question:
Does anyone know how "break off" items work? Ive broken off items from the Gnoll Chieftain and Sturdy Emuloch a few times by hitting them with heavy objects, but it doesnt always work. Also with the Giant Polar Bear I have never been able to "break off" his eye even when I hit him in it. So im asking if anyone can explain how break off works. Any more detail than "hit them in their weak spot with a heavy object." Is there a sure way to break off the objects?


Answer:
You don't need heavy objects, you can spear them (which is the preferred method generally.), but you do need multiple hits. For Sturdy Emuloch, hit the arm guard on his left hand (as I recall, might be the right, he'll do a special animation.), for Gnoll Chieftan, the hat, and for Polar Bear, you have to hit the eye repeatedly, like five times or so. --Soth 06:32, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: It is the Left Arm and It is fairly challenging, but this is the way you do it. Evilboy05-Rawr: West Server 16:10, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Question #24[edit | edit source]

Question:
About Critical Hit, what is the second number determining Crit Chance? For example, if it were 10%/100%, then you are likely to get a critical out of every 10 hits. I want to know what would be in place of the "100%". Shadowslicer777 22:35, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
As the game tells you, for lann and fiona, increased Will helps with crit chance. Nobody is certain how much exactly since your crit % chance isn't shown anywhere, but I've heard it's about 100 will for 2% increase to crit. --DANTE20XX 16:43, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about what interval by what interval would score you critical hit. Shadowslicer777 03:07, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Question #25[edit | edit source]

Question:
I have connectivity problems. When I try to join a boat, the loading point stops abruptively, never goes any higher, and then I have to log out or wait for them to kick me out. How do I fix this? Shadowslicer777 22:35, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Answer:
If I recall correctly, unless Nexon has changed it, if you sign up with a Nexon Passport ID that is under the age of 18, online interaction was disabled. This usually meant that while you may play solo, it would be impossible to play with others. ≈≈ZephyreTALK 14:38, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I've had similar problems to this. Are you able to join any boats at all, either ones you host or are hosted by others? If not, Zephyre might be right. If you are sometimes able to connect, try rebooting the computer and see if that clears up the problem. I have no idea what triggers it, but it hits me after playing for a long time.--Rognik 15:56, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm only able to host mine, but when people join, they don't pop up. I've rebooted so many times already, and it still doesn't clear. Shadowslicer777 03:13, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
